The 9,8 hectares working olive and grape farm, lends itself perfectly to Agritourism. Just 3km from the town of Franschoek, and with its main road access, it is ideally located to gain commercially from the movement of tourism. It has enormous potential to create additional income - just waiting to be transformed / renovated into something special.
The historical Main dwelling was built in 1902, and has all the charm and character one will expect. Beautiful high wooden-beamed ceilings, screed flooring, and original wooden doorways and architraves. A large loft spans the length of the house, and can easily be converted to more living space or bedrooms. The living room has a beautiful stone clad fireplace, adding to the ambience. A separate dining area, a generous Country style kitchen and scullery, 3 bedrooms and 2 and a half bathrooms, completes the main dwelling. Off the back patio, there is a private office. A beautiful, large farm stoep runs along 2 sides of the home, overlooking established gardens with mature trees, and exquisite mountain views.
The stunning original barn / old wine cellar of 135 sq m, was built in 1905. Currently used for storage, it can easily be converted into guest accommodation. It also has the potential to be a stunning wedding venue, or a quaint restaurant. Furthermore, 2 semi-detached laborer cottages can be changed into 4 beautiful self-catering farm cottages. A garage for 2 cars, and undercover storage space, completes the buildings.
The farm is fully irrigated. A borehole (with certificate) supplies a constant 15,000 liters per hour. A new pump was recently fitted to the borehole. There is a separate fresh water stream for household use.
Good alluvial soil supports the 4 hectares Olive groves, and includes Mission, Manzanilla and Frantoio varieties. The farm currently yields 8 13 tons of Olives to an established market. The 2,8 hectares Vineyard currently delivers about 46 tons of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes to 2 wineries. Both agreements may be carried on with, by the new owner.
Contract workers are used for pruning, harvesting, etc. Only 1 permanent farm worker lives on the farm.
Tucked away on the edge of the village, with awe inspiring mountain views, easy access to the N1, 650m of road frontage on the R45, a mere 3 km to Franschoek, 18km from Stellenbosch and 20km from Paarl, this rare gem can now be yours.
